For nearly a century, the Cry of Balin-tawak -- a major turning point in Philippine history -- has been the subject of controversy. The author aims to help resolve this controversy by analyzing eyewitness accounts and contemporary documents heretofore un-quoted, misquoted, or misrepresented. In her reconstruction of what transpired in Balin-tawak -- when the katipuneros, led by Andres Bonifacio, assembled in Pook Kangkong in August 1896 -- she demonstrates that the "Cry of Pugad Lawin" was a hoax.
